Victory Hop Wallop

May 26, 2010

Tilting Suds is a big fan of Victory Brewing.  Hop Wallop was a Christmas offering a few years back, and proved to be so popular that it was made into a year round Imperial IPA.  It is aptly named, as it does pack a wallop of hops bitterness.  Hazy and pale gold in color, with a fluffy white head, this has the lacing of a hefeweizen, but that is where the similarity ends.  This has piney hops, orange peel hops, grapefruit hops and just when you think that you are hopped out, here come some peppery hops.  The Hop Wallop is very dry with no malt sweetness whatsoever.  I loved this beer, 7.5/10, but I am not sure how many of these I would want to drink in a night, and at 8.5% ABV, I am not sure how many I could drink in a night.
